App Of The Week

Posted on Updated on

Hello nerds and nerdesses, welcome to the Osai Effect


Have you ever had so many pictures and videos that your SD Card and Internal memory space both got full? Have you ever woken up one morning only to find out that all your photos and videos are gone. A formatted memory card or a crashed memory card. They both amount to the same thing, though. You lose your files and that sucks! Well, worry no more because we got you covered!


Some Android devices synchronize photos and videos to Google automatically, but in case yours does not, we have just the right thing for you: Dropbox! Although we have had Dropbox as an App of the Week sometime in November, we believe a number of people are yet to benefit from the usage of Dropbox. When using Dropbox, you could turn on the automatic sync where anything captured by your camera gets uploaded automatically. Which means, one does not have to worry about lost data! Other files like songs and documents can also be uploaded and can be downloaded from any device signed into Dropbox with your email address.

We sincerely hope the loss of files stops because that sucks majorly. Thanks for reading, Ciao! Please follow us on Twitter @TheOsaiEffect , on Google+ via +TheOsaiEffect and 7B963F97 on BBM. Read the older post HERE


App of the Week

Posted on

Good morning, Nerds and Nerdesses, welcome to The Osai Effect.

Like we said earlier, we are adding a new section viz App of the Week. The app of the week is judged purely on our own usage and we suggest that you read the synopsis before download. Without further ado, we launch into the breakdown!

App of the week - Copy

Launching this section this beautiful morning, our AOTW is Dropbox! DB is a file cloud app that let’s one save files on their tablets, mobile phones or computers and have access to the saved files on any other device they are logged into which has a Dropbox app. It is also possible to get a link and send to any other user and they would be able to view and download your files. It is also possible to ‘favourite’ files and they  would be available for offline access (ie if the file was not originally saved on that device). Dropbox comes with free 2Gb storage, and is very easy to use (although it comes with a digital manual). 


Dropbox came most in handy when we wanted to send 25 large files and email was slow and uncertain. Dropbox eliminated all such uncertainties as progress can be monitored when files are being uploaded. It also came very much in handy when we wanted to work on some unfinished files that were saved on our computer which was not with us as at that moment.


And that’s our App of the Week. Thank you for reading!
